Philanthropist


There was no moment that made Williams want to work in sports philanthropy because before she even knew what philanthropy meant, she was doing it. When she started playing basketball at the age of ten, she would constantly volunteer at the YMCA to work with younger children. She’d always been an advocate for community service. Williams found philanthropy as a voluntary act because she wanted to be a part of it.

Williams continues to be an innovator in the philanthropic world by maximizing her professional expertise to bring more visibility to community platforms.

Coach & Former athlete


Coach & Former athlete


Originally from Albany, OR, Jerica accidentally fell into basketball at 10 years old after winning a free throw contest with minimal effort or skill. Falling in love with the game, she excelled through AAU, High School, and College. After attending UCLA on a basketball scholarship, Jerica transferred home after her freshman year to play for San Diego State University under legendary coach Beth Burns.

Jerica later found passion in coaching high school girls’ basketball. Her experience as an athlete fostered relationships with players both on and off the court. In 2019, she decided to jump two feet into to coaching basketball and is now the assistant women’s basketball coach at California State Northridge.

"Jerica is a dynamic young leader who has a bright future as a coach," said Flowers. "Her experience as an entrepreneur, as well as, her coaching and playing experience brings a unique perspective. Her ability to relate and communicate is a great asset that will definitely benefit our program on the recruiting trail and in her teaching."

--Jason Flowers, Head Coach at CSUN
